Happy Birthday, “No.1”
Friday, June 8th through Sunday, June 10th, Porsche fans around the world will be celebrating the 70th birthday of the very first Porsche. The first vehicle to bear the Porsche name was the 356 “No.1” Roadster, registered on June 8, 1948. The Porsche brand was born!
The weekend of June 9-10 will be packed full of local events commemorating the historic date, just as it will be around the world as everyone celebrates #SportscarTogether. The objective is a global celebration of all things Porsche and to share the passion for the brand. On the eve of the Mission E project to be launched in 2019, it is a fitting time to celebrate.
